Norman Day

Thank you, lovely day, kind, professional and helpful staff and VERY well-behaved and well informed kids, a pleasure to teach. Ditchingham’s a lovely place isn’t it… you lucky people!

Kind regards
Dan Shadrake

Swan Class had a wonderful day when they joined the Year 5/6 class at Ditchingham for a special Norman Day that was presented by Dan Shadrake, a regular Horrible Histories actor and Norman expert. The children were immersed in the Norman era through drama and had many opportunities to look at and try on a range of artefacts. Connor made a wonderful ‘William the Conquerer’. We even got to hear the gory details of William’s funeral. Did you know that he actually exploded?? Thank you Dan for a great day!
